Weave a scarf from start to finish in this one-day workshop!

The rigid heddle loom is a very portable, inexpensive and elegantly simple tool for weaving. The Cricket Loom is a small rigid heddle loom that is ideal for knitters who want to use up leftover yarns, for spinners with yarn to spare and for those just wanting to give weaving a try. Learn how to warp using the direct warping peg method and to weave a scarf using a variety of yarns. 

Looms are not included in this class but are available for rent. If you would like, please identify your need to rent at least one week prior to the class by email to: info@araneacraftstudio.com.
